Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialities area of systems-based practice, Institute of Medicine areas of patient-centered care, working in interdisciplinary teams, and using information technology, and the Interprofessional and Nursing areas of roles/responsibilities and interprofessional communication.

Statement of Need and Purpose

Clinical informaticists make key decisions during the electronic health record implementation and maintenance process that can affect the safety of nurses and patients. To lead the maintenance of an electronic health record, clinical informaticists need knowledge about key workflows, the language to support key tools, and how to manage the health of a patient population through reports.

The purpose of this training is to provide an overview of the integrated clinical health system and key functionality commonly used by clinicians. We will review the process and terminology of building a variety of integrated EpicCare tools, including areas that drive reporting.

Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the needs of clinicians in the role of informatics who are using EpicCare Ambulatory, EpicCare ED and EpicCare Inpatient in their daily practice.

Learning Objectives

Following this training, learners will be able to:

  • Demonstrate skills to help improve clinical workflows and increase clinician satisfaction
